Reaching Across




We live in a time of deep distrust of those not like us. Our fear moves us to behave in ways very different from Jesus' actions with the woman at the well.

The Road to Hell

We make ourselves feel better about ourselves when we focus on sins we might not yet have committed, blinding ourselves to the ones we have done. Imagining that we are the judges of good and evil is one of those things.

Which Way's Up?


What you accept as true determines the decisions you make. If you habitually get your news from Fox News, you accept one narrative of the world in which we live. If you are an MSNBC watcher, you accept a different narrative. If you believe that it's “us against them” you will make one sort of decisions. If you see all of us as part of the family of God, you will make different decisions. Where do you look for guidance on what is true? Which way is up? It makes all the difference.

Family Feuds

Fights within a family are often the bitterest sorts of disagreements, leaving scars for decades. We are currently in one such fight -- a feud between two of the great Abrahamic pillars of faith -- Christianity and Islam. We are family, but you wouldn't know it from the way we act. Indeed, our national dialogue was troubled by the refusal of the Obama administration to use the phrase "Islamic terrorism". Nevertheless the term has become so ingrained that we cannot hear "Islamic" without thinking "terrorism". It is as if we had permitted the KKK to speak for Christianity.
